Disney revealed some new details about two signature attractions that will be part of the new "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge," a new land, opening next year at Disneyland.

On "Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run," guests will be able to take the controls in one of three "unique and critical" roles.

On "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance," guests can join an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance - including a face-off with Kylo Ren himself.

The announcements were shared Saturday by Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products, during a presentation at D23's "Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse" weekend-long event at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

Sunday marks Mickey's 90 birthday. The lovable mouse made his debut with the Nov. 18, 1928, premier of "Steamboat Willie."

"Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" is Disneyland's first new "land" in decades. It is set to open next summer on 14 acres formerly occupied by Thunder Mountain Ranch, off of Frontierland. An actual opening date has not yet been announced.

Walt Disney World is expected to open its "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" in fall 2019.

"We are currently in the midst of one the most extraordinary periods of expansion in our history," Chapek said.

Both of the new experiences unveiled on Saturday, paired with the land's interactive components and optional integration with the Play Disney Parks app, will invite guests to become galactic travelers and live their own "Star Wars" stories in a galaxy far, far away, Chepak said.

D23 is the "official Disney fan club" established in March 2009. D is for Disney and 23 is for 1923, the year Walt Disney arrived in Los Angeles.
